It is found in Brazil in 1841, in the Amazonian montian forests.

Bacuripari is an evergreen tree with stiff, leathery leaves, growing 20-25 ft tall.

The fruit is very popular within its native range. It is commonly gathered from the wild, and is also sometimes cultivated, especially in home gardens, for the fruit which is widely sold in native markets. It is eaten raw or made into jams. The white, aril-like pulp is agreeably subacid. It has many medicinal properties.

Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

The translucent subacid white pulp has an excellent flavor; one of the best fruits of its genus. The very attractive tree is pyramidal; is rich in yellow latex. The leaves are short-petioled, ovate, oblong-ovate or lanceolate, narrowed at the base, blunt or slightly pointed at the apex, and leathery. The flowers, profuse in axillary clusters, are polygamous. The fruit, ovate, pointed at the apex, may be 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 in (3.2-4 cm) long, with orange-yellow, pliable, leathery, tough skin, 1/8 in (3 mm) thick and easily removed. The aril-like pulp is white, translucent, soft, subacid, of excellent flavor, and encloses 2 rounded seeds. The tree grows wild in the state of Rio de Janeiro in southeastern Brazil and adjacent Paraguay; is rarely cultivated. It blooms in December and matures its fruit in January and February. The ripe fruit is mostly used in making sweetmeats or jam. The seeds contain 8 to 9 percent oil (by weight) which is used in Brazil in poultices on wounds, whitlows, tumors and, externally, over an enlarged liver. An infusion of the pulp has a narcotic action with an effect like that of nicotine.

An evergreen small tree with interesting branching pattern, with three lateral branches being produced at right angles to the trunk at each node, oddly shaped growth habit makes it valuable more for a landscape curiosity than just for its fruit. The male flowers are showy and sweet-smelling. The fruits are produced in profusion and are edible, having a refreshing acid-sweet flesh. However, the sticky latex can be irritating. In Mozambique the fruit is used to prepare a pleasant alcoholic beverage. Extracts of the leaves and flowers have tested positive for antibiotic properties. It is drought-resistant, and can tolerate light frost for a short period of time.
